How do you use the PGP Shredder, the drag-and-drop item on the desktop - it doesn't seem to do anything!


I have sold, installed and maintained Symantec products for two decades now. I am sad to say it has become a terrible company that makes and repackages terrible products. Symantec was completely hacked a few years ago with all source code stolen and, recently, Symantec/Norton antivirus have removed themselves from all independent product testing because it makes them look bad. They only allow companies that can be paid to provide positive survey results, like Gartner Group, to review their products. I will never again trust Symantec to protect my computer or my clients' computers which includes shredding files. For what it is worth, I have moved all my clients to Kaspersky. Check out AV-Comparatives.org for unbiased reviews of antivirus/security products. Symantec disappeared from this review site a few years ago after consistently finishing near the bottom of the list. Even the free antivirus that comes with Windows, Windows Defender, beat out Symantec when they were being tested.

However, that doesn't help you shred files so here's my pick for that task: http://www.fileshredder.org/

I hope this helps.

Desktop gone after virus


destop may be recovered with an antivirus checker such as norton, or avg. would need the disk version . also on some occasions if you have the windows disk it can do a repair depending on the damage done by the virus. Always use a antivirus product especially if you are working online. also it is important to update the antivirus product regularly i.e. once a week , this is usually free.

Assuming you cannot access the internet with the computer in question (if you can, open Symantec and find "Update".

Here is the link to the area of Symantec to get the latest virus definition file;
http://www.symantec.com/business/security_response/definitions.jsp
Get the correct signature file based on your program version under "Select Product" Download & transfer to the correct location within the Symantec folders (Follow instructions)

Most likely you'll need to be able to view your system files.
(For XP) Go to: Tools/ Folder Options/View/ Uncheck "Hide protected Operating system files"

Let me know if this helped you

I just completed an order for Norton Antivirus 2008 on the internet and received confirmation of my order. I am, however, confused. I sat at my computer through the download and installation; however,...


Hello fayerogers02

This is process is confusing for many people. So, don't feel like The Lone Ranger.

Actually, you'll need to click on the "download" link in the email sent to you by Symantec in order to download your new software. What you have done so far is to purchase the product along w/ a subscription for antivirus definitions updates for one or more years.

Usually, the course of action is to uninstall previous versions of their software. However, Symantec's installation processes have gotten pretty good about letting the user know if the previous version of the product needs to be uninstalled.

Often times, the installation process of a newer version of a Symantec product will take care of uninstalling its predecessor for you.

IF you have purchased a newer version of the SAME Symantec product (e.g. Norton Antivirus), then I recommend you download the new product and run the install.

See if it will take care of the uninstall of the previous version for you. If you need to uninstall the previous version yourself, you will be prompted to do so.

IF, however, you have purchased a DIFFERENT product that happens to also INCLUDE Norton Antivirus, please, don't run the install yet. Instead, post back here and let me know exactly what each of the two Symantec products are called (the older and the newer one) and I'll instruct you in how to handle the installation process of the newer one.

If you have ANY more questions at all, please, post back here and let us know. We'll be more than happy to continue to assist you.

Please, wait until you have everything you need and you no longer need our assistance b4 assigning a rating.

If I answered your questions and you have no other questions or need of our assistance on this topic...would you kindly take just a moment to close the problem by assigning a FIXYA rating for my "solution"? I would be very grateful for your generosity and show of appreciation.

Thank you once again for using FixYa! Have a beautiful day.
